O'ahu Jewish 'Ohana

          An Inclusive, mindful and caring Jewish Community               

Aloha and Shalom,                                                                                                                                      

Another year has passed and the O`ahu Jewish `Ohana begins the eighth year of worship and community. Your support and active participation in the life of the OJO enables us to continue to thrive as a congregation. We are happy to report that once again, we have a full schedule of activities being planned and many opportunities for your participation. Visiting Rabbis, member-led Shabbat celebrations, weekly lay-led Torah Study, holiday celebrations and much more will keep us engaged all year. We continue to build our “`Ohana” and support what is important to us as part of the Jewish Community here and everywhere. 

During this upcoming year, the OJO board of directors is asking every member of our community to focus on increasing our membership. Only when each of us invites others to join us at OJO events will we be able to increase the size of our community. Your active participation in bringing potential members to events will ensure the cycle of activities is moving toward goals that will continue to keep our O`ahu Jewish `Ohana growing.
